Haida title talk in Queen Charlotte Thursday

  • Nov. 27, 2002 4:00 p.m.

The launch of the Haida Title case in the Supreme Court of BC has raised a lot of questions which the Council of the Haida Nation’s legal team will attempt to address on Thursday (Nov. 28) at the Queen Charlotte Visitor Information Centre.
A presentation by the lawyers for the Council of the Haida Nation —Terry-Lynn Williams-Davidson and Louise Mandell – “Haida Title and its Implications” will bring some welcome clarity to a complex issue. The layers will explain the case for Haida Aboriginal Title and describe the potential legal implications
“The presentation could be called Aboriginal Title 101,” explains John Farrell, director of community programs for the Gowgaia Institute. “This talk is an opportunity for Islanders to get better understanding of what Aboriginal Title is all about, how far it extends and how it could affect us. We will also gain a clear understanding of where the Title case fits into the larger legal landscape in BC and Canada.”
This is the second presentation in the Gowgaia Institute Speakers Series which aims to inform community discussion of a number of pressing issues affecting the islands. The lecture will be held November 28 at the Visitor Information Centre in Queen Charlotte. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the lecture to begin at 7 p.m. sharp. Reception to follow. Seating is limited so organizers suggest arriving early.
